Hilton's Efforts for Children's Charities
Record Sum Raised for Action for Children
Although Hilton's annual house-to-house collection in aid of Action For Children had to be cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the village raised the magnificent sum of £770 through donations. Organiser, Heather Woods, thanks donors for their generosity which produced a record sum from Hilton for the charity.
Toys For Woodland Lodge
The annual ecumenical gift service also had to be cancelled this year but, despite that, many gifts of toys and games were received so that children at Woodland Lodge will have Christmas presents to open on Christmas Day. Organiser, Jan Whatley, said that she had had a bumper collection of gifts this year and that she was very grateful to everyone who had donated gifts so that the children could celebrate Christmas. The photo shows the gifts that have been sent to Woodland Lodge.
East Anglian Children's Hospice
The village's monthly coffee morning which had been held in the Methodist Schoolroom was another event that had to be cancelled because of COVID-19. In its place, a weekly virtual coffee morning has been held on Zoom and a collection has been made for EACH to ensure that the charity does not lose out on the donations they would normally have received from the coffee mornings. This collection raised £320.
